Apparently Metricon made over $1.58 billion last financial year and jumped to 22nd position out of the top 500 private companies in Australia.

Nothing surprises me anymore with these builders.
Hope you find some peace, and everything is fixed ASAP.

Yes, it’s exactly the same here.

Floating Floors

With solid timber you wouldn’t need it.
But with others ie bamboo, laminates etc apparently you need extra expansion gaps at hallway and entry to rooms.

Hi guys!
I’m having floating floor boards installed, but the guy doing it insists on ugly expansion gaps and trims across several doorways.
It’s so bloody ugly, but he says it has…

Don’t stress, we had to have shorter eaves on the garage side too, and it all looks fine!
No body will even notice because it’s on the garage side.
